Baxter Knowlton captures something distinctly Southern in his oil portraits and landscapes. He paints with intense, thick brush stroke in warm, vibrant hues. His portraits of Southern writers Walker Percy, Flannery O'Connor and Shelby Foote have been used for the posters of the 2004, 2005 and 2006 Oxford Conferences for the Book. Knowlton grew up in Oxford and Jackson, Mississippi. He lives and paints in Little Rock.  


Some of the artist's work is available for sale through the Museum Store.
